I’m playing school age teacher for the rest of the summer. Our school age teacher quit. So, I moved up front and I’m trying to get some semblance of control in that room.
The first thing I talked to them about was not wanting rules, but rather guidelines. And that I thought one of the most important things we could have is respect.
I had them write and or draw a picture of what respect meant to them.
And of course I had to borrow the line from Aretha Franklin.
Then we talked about what makes us unique. I found card stock puzzle pieces at the dollar store (where else??). I put on phrases about favorite things and what you are good at.
The final bulletin board is about future dreams.
Everyone colored a hand and a star. I wrote on their plans for when they are adults on the stars under their names. There were the typical doctors and athletes, but also an engineer, an architect and a hair stylist.
My name is Kathryn. I live in suburban Cleveland. I have 2 cats, who are my kids. I work in early childhood education, specializing in infants at a local childcare center. I’ve also worked with preschoolers and school aged kids there. I used to be an ESL teacher in South Korea.
I love to bake. My coworkers get to be my taste testers. I enjoy coloring, and I even participate in a coloring Meet Up group. I’m a fan of all kinds of music, but country is my favorite. I started taking a tap class at a local dance studio. Ginger Rogers, I’m not. But I’m holding my own after *mumble years* away from it.
My kitties, Gidgette and Ivory, are my favorite models for my photography. I play around with photo editors to create what I call “Works of Art”. I’m not very good at it, but I do it anyway.
